Words, words, purple words.

The scribblings and reading log of Kara Kratcha. I can't buy all of the books, so I hoard them here. Sometimes I write something I want to type up, too. For my more tumblr-y tumblr, please visit witchesonabus.tumblr.com.

“Let me take a moment to imagine you, reader, so that I can address you and your needs to the best of my ability: you might be a book lover, a lonely internet wanderer, or a soon-to-be displaced homeowner in search of a good moving van service. You might be a publisher who somehow found this page with some very specific and possibly misguided search terms. Perhaps you’re a media studies academic with research interests in how Luddite English majors manage to create websites. More likely, you’re someone who clicked on a link from one of my social media profiles and would not otherwise take notice of a mostly empty blog that claims to cover small press publishing. That’s fine. I’m still glad you’re here. In fact, I hope you’ll read this and maybe share the link and then come back on Monday to check out our first review.”
